Nigeria Will Get Justice For Its Citizens In Ghana – Osinbajo

Nigeria Will Get Justice For Its Citizens In Ghana – Osinbajo (Updated: 2 years ago)


Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has assured that Nigerian traders facing stiff business regulation imposed by Ghana will get justice.

In August, authorities sealed their shops over a $1million equity stipulated by the Ghana Investment Promotions Council.

At a meeting with representatives of the Nigerian community in Ghana, Osinbajo said the government was looking into the situation.

“I will certainly convey the depth of your grievances to the President. I am sure that he will be deeply disturbed to hear that despite the assurances that he had received, (from the Ghanaian government) there are still problems and complications.”

He explained that the delay in resolving these issues was due to bureaucratic bottlenecks synonymous with governments.

“I look forward to getting the details and making sure that we are able to begin to resolve some of these issues as quickly as possible. You must also recognize that generally speaking, governments tend to be very slow, processes are slow, bureaucracies are slow, but we will make sure that we do the very best we can to get you your rights.

“I have followed closely developments here, and many of the incidents that you have described, I am already very familiar with. As a matter of fact, the President had asked that a review of all that had taken place be done. There have been direct communications between our President and President Akufo-Addo.

“Our President has spoken to him about this, he has made a formal complaint to him, and that conversation has been going on. What the Ghanaian government pledged to do, on three occasions, was that the shops will be reopened. In fact, I am a bit surprised that it has not taken place because my understanding was it was going to be done.

“It is very evident from what you have said here that there is so much that has gone wrong over a long period of time, and we really need to address these concerns in as detailed a manner as possible. And what I can say to you is that this is a matter that concerns the government very greatly…your welfare concerns us greatly.”

Osinbajo urged the affected traders to submit a more detailed letter containing the number of affected shops and other relevant information that would enable the Nigerian government follow-up effectively.

He appealed to nationals in Ghana to remain law-abiding and embrace peaceful coexistence.
